Bosque Chorale presents epic concert

By Simone Wichers-Voss

The Bosque Chorale will present selections from Felix Mendelssohn’s Elijah, Thursday, April 20 at Trinity Lutheran Church at 7:30 p.m. with Maestro David Anavitarte leading a choir of fifty-four voices accompanied by strings and keyboard. Soloists include Karen Atkins, Karen Thomasy, John Upchurch, and Steve Watson.

The fiery oratorio recounts the tale of the Old Testament prophet Elijah as he confronts both the political and spiritual apostasy of his day. God has stricken the land of Israel with drought and famine in response to the nation’s wickedness. Elijah intercedes on behalf of the nation and challenges the priests of Baal, a Canaanite fertility god, to a showdown. Both Elijah and the priests are to present sacrifices and the God who answers by fire will be the god of the land. Baal is a no-show.

Forgotten Places

Crawford publishes book about county schools & churches

By Simone Wichers-Voss

The first thing the earliest settlers to Bosque County did was establish communal meeting places, often a school or a church followed.

The community gathered in these places vital to daily life; they offered a meeting place, gave them a sense of community in a still strange land, offered chances to exchange information on farming, building a homestead, getting supplies and much more. The schools served to educate the next generations.

Bosque County Outlaws

Post-Civil War crininals featured at Rotary Club program

 

By Nathan Diebenow

 

The Bosque County (Clifton) Rotary Club heard a program about outlaws of Bosque County during its regular meeting at the Clifton Civic Center on Texas Independence Day.

The special program was led by Ruth Crawford, the current manager of the Bosque County Collection in Meridian.

The time period covered was the decade starting the day after Gen. Robert E. Lee surrendered his Confederate forces to end the American Civil War.

From early April to late August 1865, the county government ceased to operate. No commissioners court sessions were held. Save for school district representatives, constable, and surveyor, no local government positions were filled by election from June 28, 1866, to November 3, 1876, in Bosque County.
